Blistering knocks from Naman Ojha and Yusuf Pathan pulled the Indian Maharajas back during their run-chase against World Giants, but it wasn’t enough to get them beyond the finish line at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Oman.

In the sixth game of the Legends Cricket League, Yusuf hammered 45 off 22 deliveries while chasing a 228-run total, but the highlight of his batting performance was a stunning six against Brett Lee.

Yusuf blasted Lee over midwicket for a six in the 12th over of the game, prompting Irfan Pathan to celebrate from the dugout. Naman Ojha excelled with the bat for India as well, striking 95 off 51 balls in a losing cause.
